Global Market Outlook on Cleaning Services

  • In 2018, the global cleaning services market was valued at $54.5billion. The market is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 6.3% percent to $88.9 billion by 2025.
  • North America, Europe and some parts of the APAC, such as Australia, have high market maturity
  • UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Singapore, Canada and Eastern Europe have medium market maturity.
  • APAC and parts of LATAM are expected to be the future growth-driving markets for cleaning services

 cleaning-services-market-sizeGlobal Cleaning Services Market Maturity

  • Cleaning services penetration is still low outside Europe and North America
  • APAC and LATAM are witnessing increasing adoption, due to the efforts by large global buyers to consolidate supply bases

Global Cleaning Services Industry Trends 

  • The cleaning industry has matured in tandem with other FM services in developed markets such as Europe and the US
  • In developing regions janitorial services industry trends related to bundling, outsourcing and value-based approaches are still emerging. But within 2018, they will gain strong footholds

Global Drivers and Constraints 


  • Macroeconomic Background: High inflation rates in developing countries have a direct impact on the rising demand for wages. Rises in labor costs are crucial for the cleaning services industry, as they drive costs in a direct proportion
  • Outsourcing vs. Insourcing: Despite the difficult global economic conditions, outsourcing of cleaning services is the preferred model, compared to performing such services in-house
  • The global cleaning industry continues to be profitable, mainly riding upon the growth of the healthcare industry
  • Vacancy rates have a direct impact on procuring cleaning services for commercial spaces. Vacancy rates are on the decline, providing the impetus for the cleaning and janitorial services industry
  • In a short period, new technologies, more interoperability among different cleaning equipment and more players in the market have resulted in higher growth. This evolution of cleaning equipment's has become an advantage for cleaning service in the retail industry, which helps them to complete the task in a short time with limited resources
  • Green cleaning products and procedures will have a higher impact in the future. Hence, businesses should focus on going green and realising the benefits therein


  • Labor costs generally represent 80 percent of total operational costs. In addition to the native workers, most of the labor are immigrants and the Regulations associated with such workers can play a major role in managing cleaning services effectively in a particular country
  • Britain leaving the European Union (EU) may have negative consequences on the labor supply and thereby poses a threat of increasing labor costs

Supply Market Outlook

High Maturity Regions

  • Countries: US, UK, Australia, Germany, France, Spain, and New Zealand
  • Suppliers: Established service providers have been providing outsourced cleaning services for more than two contract generations.

Low Maturity Regions

  • Countries: Major parts of Asia, Africa, and South America
  • Suppliers: Owing to lower demand, the cleaning services market is highly dispersed with local service providers, who are more tactical rather than strategic in nature.

Medium Maturity Regions

  • Countries: UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Singapore, Canada, and Eastern Europe
  •  Suppliers: With established global service providers having a strong hold on the market, local service providers are becoming better with respect to their service offerings and quality of services.

Medium-low Maturity Regions

  •  Countries: India, South Korea, China, Mexico, Malaysia, and Brazil
  • Suppliers: The supplier’s market is largely driven by the presence of multinational FM firms trying to enter into these emerging markets, due to high growth potential.
